Chekhov's square is located near the «Azimut» hotel, just a step away from the Sportivnaya Embankment that is favourite place for promenades among locals and city's visitors.
It was opened in 2012 and named after the outstanding Russian writer who visited the city. They say when Chekhov was living in Vladivostok in 1890 he was admiring the sea from the guestroom's window. It was October.
Afterwards he wrote about the whale that was swimming in the bay's waters and splashing with its tail. The square was equipped in the frame of the «Vladivostok's waterfront» program.
The reconstruction of the territory included putting pedestrian footpath into the shape, setting the benches and lightening, as well as the planting the flowers and ornamentals. At this very moment the square is quite popular among the Chinese tourists and guests of the «Azimut» Hotel.
